The US expects allies to enforce Iran sanctions firmly

February 12, 2014 6:38 am

The US administration has warned it will come down “like a tonne of bricks” on companies that breach sanctions against Iran, the Financial Times has reported. The warning came from President Barack Obama following a visit to the country by more than 100 French companies last week. Obama said the US expects its allies to be equally firm in enforcing sanctions even under an interim deal struck with Iran last November to prevent it from acquiring nuclear weapons.
